Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop > Windows No Copy / Paste?
May 6, 2010
I am now converted over to ubuntu 10.04, love it everything works perfectly. However i use windows 2003 server for my files and remote desktop and my outlook email, i can remote desktop and do everything but i can't copy and paste a url or a text name. Is there a way around this or something I have to turn on ?
I am using XMing+Putty to access a Linux machine from an XP32 machine. I can copy text from windows and paste it to Linux fine, but I can't copy from Linux and paste to Windows consistently. If I try several times (or hold down the paste keystroke) it will eventually paste; sometimes several times!
I would like to improve the consistency of my Linux to Window pastes. I have per-mutated every combo of Clipboard and Clipboard2. I can not edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf like some other fixes suggest. I have been informed the Linux admins will not allocate resources to resolve this problem in the near future so any fixes need to be Windows side or able to be done without root/admin privileges.
Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?
I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.
And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.
Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
Just installed 10.10 32-bit on a Lenovo T61p laptop, and used Remote Desktop Viewer (version 2.3.2) to VNC into another system. I can copy from an application on 10.10 and then paste into a window in the VNC connection (e.g. to xterm or emacs), but I cannot do the reverse. When I try to paste, I get garbage displayed. For example, I selected "ls -l" from an xterm, which should have copied to the clipboard. When I paste this into an e-mail message, I get junk.
Here is what Emacs in hexl-mode says about that text: 7852 3109 05 xR1.. It shows as "xR1" some whitespace and then a tiny graphical box symbol with 00 and 05 in it. I'll try to paste it on the next line: Is this a known bug? Is there a workaround? Another app I can use? xR1 This same VNC connection works fine, when I use 10.04.
I have my main box, Ubuntu 10.04lts, and I am trying to use remote desktop viewer to see the desktop on a Windows XP machine. The machines are side by side The Ubuntu box is hardwired to my network router, and the XP machine is connected via wireless. Both get to the internet fine, and I can ping the Ubuntu box from the XP box. But, I cannot ping the XP box from the Ubuntu box, and Remote Desktop Viewer won't establish a connection to the VNC server I have running on the XP box.
I have VMware server installed on this machine. I also have a Windows XP VM running all the time. I have it bridged so it gets a valid IP from my router and such and is in my network. I use KRDC to remote desktop to it and I make it full screen. However if I want to go back to my desktop I have to minimize KRDC.
Is there a RPD client out there I can use so I can go full screen on 1 desktop and have everything else on another desktop then use KDE's Desktop switcher or ctrl+alt+arrow keys to switch between desktops to flip between Windows XP and Linux without having to minimize?
Anyone know why, my copy & paste in the terminal doesn't work....it's there, just not highlighted, I need to install Sun Java and can copy the command lines from the forum I just can't paste them into the terminal. Also is there a way to check that my Ubuntu download to my USB stick is error free?
I am experiencing an issue where the first time I copy and paste it works fine. But after that it just pastes garble. I've installed glipper and if I clear the clipboard after every copy/paste its fine.
At first I upgraded from 10.04 and this came up so I thought I would just do a clean install of 10.10. It was still happening.
I can't copy & paste text from an Evolution email message without first pasting the text into an editor like gedit or a word processor and recopying it a second time... Then it works fine... I thought the problem may have been a Delphi forum specific problem, but it also does the same thing on this board...
I running 10.04 with the default Evolution mail program.
BTW on Delphi I can turn off the wysiwyg editor and paste as "source" and it works just fine without the paste and recopy step...
I can't Copy, paste, select all, or find with my keyboard... pretty much all the commands that involve the Control key don't work. in firefox... the edit> copy, paste , etc commands are actually grayed out too.
I know I can use Terminal Server RDP v5 to do remote desktop support for Windows boxes - but would like to use something that is easier to use - for the Windows user. Is there a package that allows the user to sign onto a web site and then I can take over their Windows box using my Ubuntu box? Or is there something else as simple without me having to walk them through finding their IP, making sure their firewall isn't blocking me, etc. etc. I would love to show my clients that I can do almost everything with Linux instead of Windows.
I'm trying to set up a machine without a monitor. It has a video card in it but it won't have a monitor connected.Basically I want to press the button on the front, it boots up and I can remote desktop onto it from my main machine. I'm assuming this means it needs X.The problem I have is that with no monitor attached, it boots but complains about "low graphics". I only see this complaint after I re-connect the monitor cable. My remote desktop from the other machine works fine until I come to shut it down whereupon it just sits there presumably waiting on the display that's not connected for someone to fix the low graphics "problem."
Is there a way to stop it moaning about low graphics? Or, better yet, have a machine without a video card at all yet still be able to remote desktop onto it? Is there some kind of virtual framebuffer version of X I could use that would allow this?
Is it possible from Ubuntu Linux to remote desktop into any Windows Server through RDP ? I've tried using TightVNC it works from within the internal LAN but this is connecting from my home PC with Ubuntu over CISCO VPN client.
I can't connet to windows remote desktop using NLA. I have try'd Terminal Server Client and KRDC but it seems they don't support remote desktop with NLA, but if i wanna connect to remote desktop without NLA its ok.
i've been trying to connect to my stationary computer from my laptop. My stationary computer uses Windows Vista 32 and my laptop uses Ubuntu 10.10. I'm trying to connect to my vista computer without luck, i have installed RealVNC on my vista, opened port 5900, 5800 and 3389 on my router. My laptop is Wireless and my stationary is on cable. Tried using Terminal Server Client without luck, i get this message:
Code: Connected to RFB server,using protocol version 3.8 Performing standard VNC authentication Authentication Successful vncviewer:VNC server closed connection
I've tried adding my laptop static ip on RealVNC in the config. I have shut down windows firewall, I'm running no security, i have opened for Remote connection by right clicking My computer and in network connection. Im Running a Linksys WRT54GL with Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) std
Ubuntu 11.04Adobe Reader 9I can't highlight/select text and copy and paste it to another file. It worked for me on previous version. Please advise how to make it.After installing OpenOffice pdf extension on LibreWrite I can import .pdf but still I can't find the select/copy/paste functions.
Whenever I try to copy and paste something from Opera to Thunderbird (or FireFox) the copied text does not appear when I select paste. (or control V) My work around is to place the copied text into a empty document, re-highlight, copy and then the paste into Thunderbird will work.
Opera Version: 10.61 Build 6430 Thunderbird 3.0.6 System x86_64, 2.6.32-24-generic
In Ubuntu, why does copy and past not work for most applications. I can't tell you how many times I have copied some text and went to a new application and Past is greyed out. For example, in Firefox I can highlight some text like "Belmont Diner", then right click and choose "Copy". Then go up to the Google search bar and right click and Paste is not an option. I have tried doing this using Crtl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. It does not work...most of the time. Every once in a while it will but most of the time it does not. I can repeat the action to make sure I really copied the data and still no luck. Sometimes it works but many times it does not.
Has anyone seen a seamless way to create a symbolic link via a GUI based file manager? I have been using PCManfm because I find it fast, but I can copy the file but paste a symbolic link instead of the actual file.
I am running ubunutu 9.10 and am having problems with the Kate text editor (v3.3.2). I leave my computer on for many weeks at a time as it is part of a network and others use it to run code on. During this time I am using kate as my text editor, and copy and paste from kate to other applciations, such as the terminal.
Infrequently but regularly enough to cause me trouble I can no longer paste text I copy from kate. I can copy and paste within kate, but I cant copy from kate and paste into the terminal or thuderbird, or firefox etc.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Now I am organising the structure of maps and folders, etc. My struggle is that I seem to have no permission to copy, paste and move files to another place then the home folder and the desktop.I am a total newby in Ubuntu and coming from a Windows operating system, so please give me some assist. I guess it must be very simple, but I don't have a clue at the moment.
That used to come with the remote desktop app. You could choose vnc or rdp.Now only choice is vnc.Is there a way to get rdp on there? Remote Desktop Viewer 2.30-2 F13-64.I can rdesktop from command line, but thats a royal pain if you're like me and have dozens of computers to check on from time to time.
I looked in YAST it appears everything is installed on my 11.3 machine to remotely view another desktop what I am missing is how I set that up on both ends. The desktops I want to view are on the local network. A Windows 7 64 machine and a openSUSE 11.4 machine.Does anyone have experience setting this up?
I'd like to remote into my Linux (Ubuntu) desktop from a Windows desktop. Of course there is VNC, among others. The trick is that I just want to have a remote session without having any local screen sharing. In other words, when I type and move the mouse on the Windows computer, I don't want that activity to show up on the screen remote Linux system. The Linux box should just sit there at the login prompt or whatever it was doing prior to my remote login.
I am having the following problems:I have tried installing vnctightserver on Ubuntu and then installing the viewer on my windows machine but when I try to connect it rejects the connection....I need to remotely access the ubuntu-desktopn my ubuntu server LTS 10.04..... I have tried a number of guides but none are working for me....I have a firewall installed (iptables) but the neccesary ports have been opened up but my server still rejects incoming vnc connections.On a side note I do not have physical access to the server so all setup needs to be done via SSH...
is there any apps compatible with remote desktop? So my xubuntu system can connect to my windows system using the existing set up for remote desktop... or do I need to install a new client/server or thing on both systems? I do not mind doing that if you can recommend a good client/server but would prefer to just connect to the existing remote desktop if possible
